  • Purchase a new fire extinguisher simulator and offer more public, adult-based fire prevention education classes
  • Offer quarterly Public CPR/AED classes to help improve community response to emergencies
  • Continue to conduct multi-agency training within the township between Police, Fire, and EMS on a more regular basis

  • Begin the process of a total review and update of the department’s policies and preferred operating methods to align them with current standards, as well as meet the needs of the community
